YOUNGSTOWN

Vice President Joe Biden said the presidential election comes down to two different visions.

In a Friday conference call with Ohio reporters, Biden, a Democrat, said, “This is the clearest choice America will have” in decades when choosing a president between Barack Obama, the incumbent Democrat, and Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican nominee.

Obama and Romney both campaigned Thursday in Ohio, considered a key swing state in the presidential election.

Obama spoke in Cleveland and Romney in Cincinnati, both about the economy.

Biden and Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman, both Democrats, were on the conference call from Orlando, the location of the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

The call was delayed for 35 minutes. Biden and Coleman spoke for about 10 minutes, and Biden got off the call before reporters could ask questions.

Sorry I don't see much difference. I will vote "none of the above".

Romney brings nothing new to the table. Electing him will be like putting Bush back in office and the same party whose failed policies caused this recession in the first place.

The economy was pretty good under Bush. If Bush did cause the turmoil we are in, then Obama is obviously not the guy to get us out. Things just keep getting worse while Obama does everything except fix the economy. Obama is a nice guy, but can't do the job. Time to give someone else a chance, and Romney is a good alternative.

I love folks who say the alternative is not good so let's just keep the ones who have failed to correct anything in charge. If your horse can't win you pick another and pray. Romney can't be anywhere near as inept as the present fumbler in chief.

I am not a clear fan of either candidate at this point....however, how can I justufy voting for the incumbent POTUS when all he does is circumvent and overlook the Constitution. I have never seen so many executive orders in my life that are a detriment to the United States.

For instance, how does the POTUS justify an executive order, which side steps the legal process, allowing hundreds of thousands of illegals to stay and not be deported on facts that they have been here since they were children. Give me a break. And people wonder why this country is in the state it is in.

One can find articles on Fox News and CNN about this.

I am all for illegals coming to this country...but the right way. Apply for a Visa, get a work permit then a Green card....not hey you came here illegally and ohh guess what here is your citizinship and permanent work permit for just being here.

you know the only reason BO can't pass anything is because the Republicans are blocking anything he tries to do because they want more tax breaks etc for the RICH ....You guys must either be rich or highly stupid if you want to vote a republican in. Yes lets all join the slave camp for the rich because a republican don't care about the non existant middle class nor the poor. We will be in worse shape when too many idiots vote in republicans and wine and cry about how bad it is going to be.

If someone was brought here as a child, went to school, graduated, has never been arrested, has served in the military, I saw welcome to America. We need every hardworking and law-abiding person we can get to counter act the native born population who are worthless and lazy.

BTW, I wonder what Youngstown's reaction would be if ICE hit up all the senior living facilities. I know for a fact that there are thousands of Italians and Slavics here who were never naturalized. Since many were housewives and never held employment, nobody ever cared. If we want to be consistent, then they've got to go as well.
